Gabrielle Calvocoressi, and New Stuff on the Litlab

Over at the Writers At Cornell Blog, you'll find an interview I conducted today with poet Gabrielle Calvocaressi, author of the collection The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart. A recipient of the Rona Jaffe Award for Emerging Women Writers, she has been both a Stegner Fellow and a Jones Lecturer at Stanford University. She lives in Los Angeles. We discussed the long, apelike shadow of Wallace Stevens, porno drive-ins, and what precisely a prose poem thinks it's supposed to be. Gabby is funny as hell, and gave a great reading this afternoon--stop by and give it a look.

In addition, The Litlab is really cooking, with new weird stuff from William Walsh, Sharma Shields, Evan Sobel, Tim Reynolds, Adalena Kavanagh, and Dana Koster.

I've never witnessed anything so brilliant before. She's my new favorite super hero.

I think her book is pretty good, but I like the newer poems way better. The line "I love you / like Elvis loved pistols" was perhaps the best of the day...

That line combined with her reading style made it the best of my year

I liked her new stuff, but The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earheart is the best book of poetry I've read in a long time. I think I'll reserve judgment on the new book until I see it in print.

Greeting! What do you think of wow gold? I always lack of wow gold to buy some great item for my char before the wow patch 3.1 and I need to do wow power leveling for the cheapest wow gold or I have to search cheap wow gold on google search. The world changed since the 3.1 patch released. Short of buy wow gold for me wasn't so high frequency now. And I’m curious why this situation happened? The items became cheap? Or we can farm wow gold much easy? Hope someone can give me an answer.
